You have the absolute right to permanently remove your data at any time with one simple click of our REMOVE option. We will then delete you from our database altogether within 3 working days.
Our email updates allow you instantly unsubscribe. This just means that we won’t send you emails.
To be legally compliant and to treat visitors in the most transparent way possible, it is the responsibility of the website to tell you the who, why, what and where of the information gathered.
5Rights controls its own data (and doesn’t share it).
We collect information on our website. We ask organisations and individuals to submit information if they choose to support us by becoming signatories to the coalition or by opting to receive updates. We’ll check you still want to be on our database yearly.
It is important to know who our supporters are, so that we can communicate with them. This is why we keep a limited amount of permission based data.
When organisations or individuals join us and agree to publicly support 5Rights, we ask you to share your name, and basic contact details so we can keep you updated. We will only publicly share your name and logo with your explicit permission. When you share you data with us, it is always protected, safe and never, ever passed to others.
Our data is held on a secure server, and by third parties. Our database supplier (Sugar) provides the software for our storage, and our email system (MailChimp) sends out updates. These systems provide vital business services, they do not ‘use’ your data.
If there is something concerning you, or you need advice on the use of your data, we recommend that you contact a support line or organisation like Childline.
We encourage everyone to participate in the 5Rights debate. For anyone under 18, we recommend you leave us just your first name and only provide an email if you want a response. You don’t need parental permission to do this, because children’s data is protected in the same way as adults. We won’t publish your name on our website or in any other piece of our communications.
Our website is designed to be simple, and to educate. One common area that is not universally understood is Cookies.
Cookies are online ‘tags’ which companies use to gather information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about the sites you visit in order to gather statistics and/or provide advertisements about goods and services to you.
5Rights is supported by the National Children’s Bureau (and we share their charity number, but not our data). We are registered with the Information Commissioner as 5Rights.
